Australian Data Centre


To ensure maximum uptime, we have use a fully redundant network. This includes the following:

Redundant Network Connections
We are connected via 3 primary different carriers, should 1 fail the system is switched over automatically on our routers to ensure your server is still up. Our connections include:
AAPT, Connect (Dual Australian circuit), Datafast, Pipenetworks, Powertel and Vivanet. Our circuits are un metered.

Redundant Cisco Routers
In the event a router goes down, all data is re-routed to our backup router. Also if there are any upgrades to be performed to the primary router, the secondary takes over to ensure no downtime is experienced.

BPG4 Routing
This method of routing automatically switches your packets of information in the event the path is blocked between us and it's destination


The Data Center 1 and 2 are both located in the heart of Brisbane in Queen Street and Creek Street. Both are a true Teir 1 Data Center with the following features:

Dual UPS
In the event that a power outage occurs in the city. The UPS (Uninterruptible Power Supply)takes over whilst the generator starts up. Once the generator has started it takes over and powers the data center. In the event that the first UPS is faulty it automatically switches over to a second UPS

Backup Generator
Located within the building is a backup diesel generator. In the event of a prolonged power outage the generator can power the data center for 3 days before refueling. The system is tested and maintained monthly.

Redundant Air Conditioning Humidity/Climate Control
Redundant air condition ensures your servers stay cool, if 2 isn't enough there is also an emergency backup air conditioner. Humidity control keep the environment static free.

VESDA (Very Early Smoke Detection Agent)
This is a special gas that in the event of a fire, releases a gas in the room. This gas puts out the fire before spreading and is harmless to humans and electronic equipment.

24/7 NOC
The data centre is monitored 24/7 by Powertel and ourselves. This ensures that the uptime is maintain and should a problem occur, will be resolved quickly and efficiently.

Big Boys' Choice
Many of Australias largest telecos are also in the same room. Telstra, Datafast, Optus, TPG, iiNet and more).

US Data Centre

The Planet's data centers are among the best-connected hosting facilities in the world. Our data centers are implemented through a high-speed network specifically designed for dedicated server hosting. The Planet has invested in both network equipment and backbone connections to ensure that customers get the fastest access possible to their content and applications.

The Planet's data centers have multiple network connections to different Internet backbones, allowing data to be distributed though many sources - meaning that The Planet's network is not dependent upon any single Internet backbone.

The Planet internal network architecture utilizes the Enterprise routing and switching engines from Juniper and Cisco. We utilize Juniper M20 routers as border routers, Cisco 6500 series switches in our distribution layer, Cisco 6500 and 5500 switches in our aggregation layers, and Cisco 3500 and 2900 series switches at the customer layer. Our network is fully meshed and redundant with 6 backbone providers. Our current network consists of, UUNet (GigE), Level 3 (GigE), Time Warner (GigE), Global Crossing (GigE), Verio (GigE), and ATT (DS3). Please see our network diagram below.
